The weekend

What a beautiful weekend in Charleston.  Saturday was about 75 and sunny.  Sunday was a little cooler, but the sun still shined. 

We were two busy kids on Saturday.  I got up, met a girlfriend at my old gym and did a Body Attack class.  It had been a while, so I was definately sore afterwards!  After playing with the two adorable kids across the street, we got to working on refinishing the dresser for the 3rd bedroom.  I am sad to say that I did not get a picture of the "before" as I totally forgot.  But I did manage to get some good in between shots. 

The dark has the stain on it we are using-it turned out much lighter.  The other side you can see how gorgeous the cherry wood is!  We really sanded it down well.  Can't wait to show you the finished product

Sunday morning was an early day for Chad.  He got up at 6 am and started putting the poly on the dresser.  After cleaning the house, we headed over to Lowes & Home Depot to look for hardware for the dresser-no luck.  They don't have the sizes we need.  We stoped by Target and I got some great containers to help me organize this mess.

YOWSER!  How did we collect all this crud??  And it went into the smallest cabinet in the whole kitchen!

After throwing away about 80% of all that above, I was left with this workable amount. Dogs stuff on the left, people on the right.

Not bad, right??

The finished product!  Organized and put away! 
 Now if I could just find the energy to organize my butler's pantry.  Hell, maybe I'd actually find the "butler" hidden in all that mess.  I hope he's ok in there!  :)

I think we are going to grill out with some friends tonight, so that will be a great end to a fabulous weekend.  Now, let's hope next week flies by!  We are going to see Ron White on Saturday and I can not wait!
